Brown, A. (2013). A timeline reflection: emboldened learning from my stories. International Practice Development Journal, 3 (2), 8-1-8-9.


This paper is a personal reflection on my leadership development using empowerment, enlightenment and emancipation as a reflective framework. Aim and objectives: To reflect on my leadership journey and share some of my leadership stories as examples of opportunities for personal growth. Conclusions: I have experienced a rich and fulfilling leadership journey; others could experience similar paths if they seek and seize the right opportunities. My journey continues. Implications for practice: • Leadership development can be enhanced by an open and responsive attitude to opportunities • A model of reflection can be used to analyse experiences and tell them as stories (if only to oneself) • Reflection will help measure personal and professional growth
